Under the direction of the newly appointed Head Chef Tony Hung, Foxglove’s revamped menu will provide diners a nostalgic departure from their retro-chic surroundings. Chef Tony, previously of reputed Cantonese restaurant Hoi King Heen in the Intercontinental Grand Stanford, has curated authentic Cantonese flavours, contemporary cooking methods and plating techniques he learned and mastered over the years.
Frank Minza’s Tale: From French to Cantonese Fare
Frank Minza, the English mastermind behind Foxglove and a consummate jetsetter, pondered greatly for his next wanderlust foray of fine food and bold ingredients. With only a thirst for new flavours and bold experiences, he boarded his yacht and set sail for a tour around China! He journeyed to tiny villages and great cities across the coast to enrich himself in the culture, customs and native ingredients of the local villages. He tasted delectable Yue Cuisine from local street chefs, reminiscent of the time he spent with his long-lost love. The cuisine he savored across his journey greatly inspired him to bring about a new menu of Modern Cantonese Cuisine to Foxglove, so he could share a part of his unforgettable journey with his patrons.
Introducing Head Chef Tony Hung
Bringing with him over 3 decades of culinary experience, Foxglove welcomes new Executive Head Chef, Tony Hung.
Originating from Guangdong, Chef Hung formerly worked at the Intercontinental Grand Stanford’s One Michelin Star Cantonese restaurant, Hoi King Heen. It was there that he discovered his own distinctive style and perfected the art of Cantonese Cuisine.
Chef Hung has created a new lunch and a la carte menu, which incorporates fresh, seasonal ingredients into traditional Cantonese Cuisine.
